Be like Frodo

The destiny of Middle Earth hangs in the balance, and it’s up to you to decide whether Gandalf, Frodo and the forces of good will prevail. Then again, The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth also allows you to take up with the bad guys and cover the lands in darkness. In this PC game, the storylines last about 10 hours. But if you don’t have

that kind of time, then command armies from Rohan, Mordor, Isengard or Gondor in a one-off match against a computer opponent or another Rings fan online. For those pining for another instalment of the epic tale, this’ll do. MICHAEL SNIDER
